A short, yet extremely vital checklist for reviewing your application BEFORE you hit submit. Because there are no takebacks or redoes!
The Texas Medical and Dental Schools Application Service (TMDSAS) would like to announce the following updates to the application for Entry Year 2022.
Language Proficiency. There is a new question asking applicants to select any languages, other than English, in which they are fluent and indicate the level of proficiency. The levels of proficiency are: Beginner, Intermediate, and Expert/Native Speaker. Further information describing each level of proficiency is provided within the EY 2022 Application Handbook. It is important to note that this is self-reported by the applicant based on their own evaluation of their language skills. TMDSAS will not independently verify an applicant's language proficiency.
Parent/Guardian Information. TMDSAS recognizes that the previous Family/Significant Person section did not represent all family types, therefore applicants now have the ability to complete up to six entries for parent/legal guardian. The options for each entry include biological parent, adoptive parent, stepparent, grandparent, sibling, and other legal guardian. There will no longer be a requirement to enter biological parents’ information.
Significant Person. Applicants now have the ability to enter up to six significant people, other than parents/legal guardians, who have played a significant role in their life. The options for each entry include grandparent, family friend, sibling, and spouse.
Leadership Activities Section
In addition to the prompt asking applicants if they have any leadership roles or positions of responsibility to enter, the language now specifies that in the absence of any leadership roles, the applicant may list leadership qualities learned from other opportunities.
Veterinary School Applicants
Required Planned Activities. Veterinary applicants are now required to complete the Planned Activities section. They will list future activities in which they plan on participating between the application deadline and August 2022.
GRE no longer required. The TMDSAS veterinary schools no longer require the graduate record exam (GRE) for consideration for admission for EY 2022.
The TMDSAS Application will open Monday, May 3rd, 2021. Applicants will be able to submit applications as soon as Monday, May 17th, 2021. Applications will be processed in the order in which they are submitted.
The Entry Year 2022 Application Handbook is available here.
